that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> oh, okay. >> you know, richard haass, for the 66,000 troops currently serving in afghanistan and for the families all across america this morning, i'm sure they're glad to know that we don't have a secretary of defense in place and we're not going to because of a seven-year-old political grudge. forget about sequestration. forget about all the cu
are facing major hurdles. senator john mccain says he may filibuster chuck hagel's nomination if the president doesn't get more information on the attack in benghazi and a hold on general renan if he doesn't get answers about the use of drones in the united states of america. that's an issue we talked about last week when i asked the chairman of the house intelligence committee that very question, whether he could see a time when drowns were used against american citizens on american soil. >> i don't think we'll ever get there. i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy, no matter their citizenship, is long standing in this country. they no longer have the benefit of u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're on foreign land fighting the battle of the united states. >> earlier, i spoke with rand paul of kentucky and asked him if he thinks he is wrong. >> well, he didn't say no. what i want to hear from john brennan before i agree to let his nomination go forward, that no cia or the department of defe
interrogation program. but there was some aspects of it that i concurred with. senator john mccain is asking brennan to prove it. >> i think you'd have to explain what techniques, where they were able to work and why some technique which is are also in violation of the gee into he have a conventions are okay, but there are others are not. and so i think there is a lot of questions out there for mr. brennan. >> after leaving the c.i.a. in november 2007, brennan defended the enhanced methods saying they have, quote, saved lives. today brennan offered this explanation. >> i had expressed my personal objections and views to my agency colleagues about certain of those eit's such as water boarding, nudity and others where i professed my personal objection to it. but i did not try to stop it because it was something that was being done in a different part of the agency under the authority of others. >> another key question has been high profile leaks which critics say were strategically done to make mr. obama look tough. brennan says he's not the subject of a probe or target. he's a witness. chris.
senator john mccain was questioning secretary panetta and general dempsey and it was a moment when he asked about, it could be lost, in terms of the overall coverage, but it's where he asked whether the two of them supported arming rebels in syria, and many of our viewers may wonder, what does this have to do with benghazi and libya? listen to senator john mccain and then i'll explain. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton, and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria. >> we did. >> you did support that? >> we did. >> reporter: that's the first time that i've heard that the defense department and military officials say that they had recommended arming syrian rebels. you'll remember over the weekend that "the new york times" reported that last summer petraeus and clinton approached the white house for permission to arm the rebels. "the new york times" says that the white house rejected that request. however, there have been some implications from questions from senators on the hill as to
to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that is grave concern. >> between john brennan as c.i.a. director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense. we want make sure we have our guys working. we don't want something missed because of a hangup in washington. >> reporter: another vote on hagel is expected after congress returns. >> hagel is all but confirmed, how will it impacted his ability to be an effective leader. do not miss an all new fox news sunday, that is tonight when chris wallace sits down with lindsay graham, that is coming up at 6:00 p.m. eastern. >> kelly:
that did not harm but would gather information. this administration ran against john mccain saying, even though john mccain agreed, yeah, we don't want to water board, we don't want to do anything that somebody might someday call torture, they complained, gee, this is allowing radicals to be recruited against the united states because of the unjust nature of doing a procedure that's not harmful to someone's health, to gather information to save american lives, which it did. here we are now with this administration that thought waterboarding helped jeeyaddists -- jihadists recruit more radicals using a process of having a high administration official think to himself or herself, i don't think this may be enough. blow them up. without giving adequate consideration to civilians who will be killed, to family members who will be upset, to the ability of our enemies to use that to recruit other radicals, many times over, to replace those that have been killed with a drone strike. this administration's systemic failure to understand what the muslim brotherhood calls, quote, civilization jihad,
. >> senator john mccain asked secretary panetta about syria and the idea of arming the opposition firefighters there. >> did -- fighters there. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state -- then secretary clinton and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? do you support that? >> we do. >> shepard: officials say the united states has not sent any weapons, at least not directly to the syrian rebels. there is a new sign of hope for the job market tonight. but our latest fox news poll shows americans may not be feeling so hopeful about how the country is doing. we are following the breaking news, of course, for the manhunt of the accused cop killer in california. investigators say he is armed and extremely dangerous and apparently on a mission to murder more police officers and others. our reporters are on stand by as breaking news develops. we are live there. using robotics and mobile technology, verizon innovators have made it possible for teachers to teach, and for a kid... nathan. tadpole. ... to feel like a kid again. because the
think, i think conservatives are going to win just as they did with john mccain on amnesty for illegals, but not if they're too demoralized to call their congressman and write their senators, we're probably not going to like obama's cabinet nominees over the next few years. we still have 2014 and republicans who hold the house and we may pick up the senate. but don't be demoralized republicans, and it's curious how the gun debate started and this time it's different, we're pushing gun control and a few weeks go by and it seems to have kind of petered out. same thing with amnesty. >> sean: and he's a -- he's a pediatric neuro surgeon, and he was the guy that confronted obama over medical savings accounts, the debt, the deficit and i'm watching his speech and then i interviewed him and i'm thinking why don't republicans say what he's saying? because it's common sense. >> right. >> sean: it's appealing. it resonates. >> right, and-- >> why is he saying these things? >> it was magnificent and you say he confronted obama over these things. it wasn't confrontational, it was pure common sense
senator dianne feinstein and carl levin and john mccain says is grossly inaccurate. i'm having a little trouble here. inaccurate and misleading. even going so far as to denounce the movie in a letter to sony pictures. now even hollywood seems to be turning its back on the film. daniel henninger, deputy editorial page editor for "the wall street journal" turning into a little bit after movie critic, daniel, in your latest column. why are you bothered by the back and forth about this film? >> i am bothered by it, jenna, i was in downtown manhattan the morning of september 11th and as well as many other people and experienced it first-hand. this movie finally closes the circle, i think for a lot of us on that event by giving us the story of the tracking down and killing of usama bin laden. and so people were taking this movie in, victims and families of 9/11 it, in that context and then senator feinstein, levin and john mccain sort of belly-slam into the middle of it and decide, oh, the movie isn't about closing the circle on 9/11 and the london bombings and the madrid bombings. it will be
in november 14, 2011, letter to senator john mccain and lindsey graham. leon panetta warned about the "devastating impact" of the sequester. few in the pentagon thought congress and the white house would take the nation to brink. >> bret: jepper if griffin at pentagon. thank you. u.s. factory production dropped in january after twoson months of gains. stocks finished the week flat. dow was up 8. s&p lost 1-1/2. the answer to the question what happened the night terrorist hit the u.s. facilefy in benghazi, libya, might be what day is it? almost every day brings another detail or revision or contradiction of what we heard earlier. tonight, chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge tells us what we know and what we don't. >> according to a leading republican who said he spoke with clapper, the top intelligence officer. >> i was told by clap they're the president was informed of the attack. >> as if the president wanted anything done, neither clapper office or the security council spokesman addressed the question. >> this is the most transparent administration in history. c
a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> sreenivasan: republican senator john mccain of arizona argued the military could have deployed in time, if it had heeded warnings coming from the consulate and ambassador stevens. a 21-year-old bangladeshi man pleaded guilty today to plotting to blow up the federal reserve bank in new york. quazi nafis was arrested in october after an f.b.i. sting operation. prosecutors said he drove a van to the door of the bank and tried to set off what he thought was a bomb. in fact, the van was carrying dummy explosives supplied by an f.b.i. agent. nafis faces 30 years in federal prison. in tunisia, new protests broke out in the capital, demanding the end of the government. it was the second day of unrest sparked by the killing of a leading opposition figure. we have a report narrated by jonathan rugman of "independent television news." >> reporter: in tunis today, crowds converged on the interior ministry on the same spot where the so-called arab spring began two years ago. "the people want the downfall of the regime" the chant once again.
and then at least another two republican votes and then you have senators like john mccain saying that they are not going to back afilibustl a filibuste. so they are still confident that chuck hagel's nomination will be confirmed. you have mitch mcconnell coming out suggesting he might try to slow walk this process. majority leader harry reid saying he's not going to let that happen. again, the white house at this hour, martin, still confident that hagel will be confirmed. >> and this in the context of what happened last night. what are your sources telling you about the likelihood of the president referencing north korea and its nuclear weapons test in his speech tonight? >> reporter: well, martin, my sources are telling me it is very likely that he is going to reference what happened in north korea overnight. remember, the white house put out a statement overnight condemning the action saying that it was a highly provocative action. i can also tell you that president obama spoke to the president of south korea today. they shared their concerns about this third nuclear launch, w
nomination as secretary of defense. late today, procedural vote failed after senator john mccain had made the case for waiting until after next week's recess. >> i think that is a sufficient period of time to get answers to outstanding questions and i think that senator hagel after that period of time deserves a cloture vote and a uvote on his. >> i have valued your thoughts and your contributions. i think most all of us in public office feel that way. >> among questions, speeches like to one in june 13, 2008, before the arab american antidiscrimination committee that hagel did not disclose to armed services committee. earlier they blasted republicans for holding up hagel's nomination to lead the pentagon. >> it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation would a fully empowered secretary of defense. during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. >> but panetta isn't leaving yet. and 60-vote requirement is not unusual, say republicans and reid was fine when it was president bush's nominees. top republicans say members have legitimate concerns. >>

, as john mccain said, like arizona and texas, could actually go blue if the republican party doesn't join in an effort to fix the immigration system. there's a real question though on how far it to go. you see the president will be pushing for citizenship and a lot of members of the republican party are willing to talk about border security, work place enforcement and other issues but they do not want to go past legalization which includes fines and other things to the ultimate sort of gift of citizenship for people who have broken the law. that is where the fight will come down. will we have a bill? probably. the will it go all the way to citizenship? probably not. jon: a.b. stoddard from "the hill". good to have you on. >> thank you. jenna: some new information on another big story today, on that suspenseful hostage standoff that came to a very dramatic end. fbi agents stormed a bunker where a man was holding a 5-year-old boy for a week. killing the hostage-taker and pulling out the boy, luckily unharmed. law enforcement believes they acted just in time. >> they had reason to believe th

the armed services committee tomorrow for a vote it could be held up. john mccain, excuse me, senator lindsey graham, the republican senator from south carolina, has said he could put holds on both of senatorial privilege. unofficial and informal way of soing things dead in their tracks. he says both brennan as well as mr. hagel have not come clean and he has more questions and he needs straight answers. listen. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting, did the president ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the libyan government to help these folks? >> reporter: he is talking about the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republican freshman texas senator ted cruz also threadent holding up nominations. democrats are furious and they're worried. watch. >> this is unprecedented, unwarranted to stop or attempt to try to stop the nomination of a secretary of defense and a cia director. >> reporter: well the problem with all this if they go to the co
